vCenter Configuration Manager login fails with error: Your ID has either not been created in VCM, or you have no current VCM roles

Symptoms

vCenter Configuration Manager Console login page appears but when the Login button is clicked you receive this error message:
Your ID has either not been created in VCM, or you have no current VCM roles.
Error Message:
Unknown Error

Resolution

This issue occurs if the advanced SQL configuration option Ole Automation Procedures is disabled.

The VCM console relies heavily on  SQL servers ability to create automation objects. To resolve this issue, run these statements in SSMS:
sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1
GO
RECONFIGURE;
GO
sp_configure ‘Ole Automation Procedures’, 1
GO
RECONFIGURE;
GO
sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 0
GO
RECONFIGURE;

Performance charts for networking does not work on ESX/ESXi 4.1 Update 1

Symptoms

  • Performance charts for networking fail to work on ESX/ESXi 4.1 Update 1
  • You are using bnx2x driver version 1.54.1.v41

Resolution

To workaround this issue, use an asynchronous Broadcom driver, such as bnx2x-1.62.15.v41.2.
To download the driver, see the VMware Download Center.

Additional Information

This issue will be fixed in  ESX 4.1 Update 2 with a pre-installed driver.

IBM XIV Storage Plug-in for Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS), Version 1.0.2.1

The plug-in enables failover automation of XIV storage services that run on two geographically dispersed cluster nodes, enabling deployment of MSCS in a geo-cluster configuration.

 

MSCS and the XIV storage system support one-button fail over initiation for automated recovery, or manual fail over for step-by-step control over the recovery process. Both accommodate a broad range of fail over scenarios and infrastructure components. Version 1.0.2.1 includes a hotfix for a known issue.

AP769A HP StorageWorks PCIe 8Gb Host Bus Adapter

HP sunucular üzerinde kullanılan AP769A ürün kodlu HBA kartı için işletim sistemi kurulumundan sonra patch geçilmesi gerekiyor. Aksi taktirde HBA kart işletim sistemi tarafından düzgün olarak tanınmadığı için çalışmıyor. Aşağıdaki linkten ilgili patch leri işletim sistemi türüne göre download edebilirsiniz.

IBM 46M6049 8 Gb FC HBA with Vmware ESX 4.1

IBM 46M6049 ürün kodlu kart takılı bir sunucuya Vmware ESX 4.1 kurulduğunda, ESX 4.1 hba kartını görmüyor. Bunun için vmware in web sitesinden (http://downloads.vmware.com/d/details/esx4_brocade_fcoe_dt/ZHcqYnRlZUBidGR3) ilgili driver ları download edip kurmak gerekiyor. Vmware ESX işletim sisteminin her ne kadar geniş bir donanım desteği olsa da ESX kurduktan sonra mutlaka ekstra driver ihtiyacı olup olmadığı kontrol edilmeli. Zaman zaman eksik driver problemi sanki donanım arızası gibi algılanabiliyor.

Kolay gelsin.
